Some Tips for Grocery Shopping

  • If you’ve got little snack containers use them to put your nuts in so you have an “off the shelf” snack ready to go.
  • If you’ve got lunch containers always have them ready to store leftovers in the fridge or freeze for emergency meals.
  • Write your menu up of a sheet of paper or a white board that way you will start to get into a routine and not have to think about it as much.
  • You can make your base salads and leave them in the fridge and when you’re ready to eat them just add your protein and maybe some avocado and you’re good to go.
  • If something needs to be used in the fridge use it, switch days of the meal plan or change the meals around so you can use everything in the fridge DO NOT WASTE THE FOOD.
  • If you haven’t got the basics for cooking go and get them; slow cooker, non stick pan, baking dish, a good knife, a vegetable peeler, a Y peelers for shedding carrot and cucumbers, tongs etc.
  • Make breakfast a habit and if you have got limited time in the morning make breakfast the night before.
  • Always have some nuts, fruit, tin of salmon or tuna with you so you can have an emergency food supply so you don’t skip meals.
  • Try and eat every 3 hours. This helps keep you full and maintain your energy through the day.

  • Go for organics as much as possible.
  • Grass fed meat is a must (the cows are much happier and healthy).

  • If you fall off the diet get back on and don’t stress about it.
